FAMILY NOTE: The following was written in a 1982 Christmas card to family and friends of Wayne, by his fourth wife Linda. "Those of us who loved Wayne will miss him dearly. Not only during the holiday season, but special occassions and times of need. He was a good husband who loved his family and cherished his friends above all else. He couldn't have left me in the hands of a greater group of people. Love to all, Linda [nee Wojtaszek]" There was a photo of Wayne on the left and on bottom right the inscription "Wayne Hanes (1925-1982)".
